      Wow, these are good and I believe that they are gluten free! They came together really easily. I used a cookie dough scoop so they were larger and I got 20 out of the batch. Also, I just drizzled the melted chocolate on instead of using a baggie. This would be a great "go to" recipe when you need to make something quickly. Made for Holiday tag game. Thanks Nancy's Pantry!! :)

      These were little melt in your mouth bits of chocolately goodness! I made these earlier today and, other than a few I stashed to take to work tomorrow, they were all devoured. Made for ZWT 8 Bistro Babes.
